Effective November 23, 2022 (view archived version)
If you are an individual purchasing a ZeroFox for Everyone subscription, the terms governing your subscription are available here.
This ZeroFox for Business Master Customer Agreement (this “Agreement”) is between ZeroFox, Inc., a Delaware (USA) corporation (“ZeroFox”), and the business asset or organization that you represent (“Customer”).
You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age and that you have the right, power, and authority to enter into this Agreement on behalf of Customer. This Agreement becomes binding and effective on Customer upon the earliest of: (1) when you access or use the Services, (2) when you click the “I agree” (or similar) button or check box referencing this Agreement, (3) when you execute an Order with ZeroFox, or (4) when you execute a contract or order with a ZeroFox-authorized reseller (“Reseller”) incorporating this Agreement.
Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in the text of this Agreement will have the meanings assigned to them in Exhibit A (Definitions).
1. Use of Platform
This Agreement sets forth the terms pursuant to which Customer (and, subject to Section 4, its Customer’s Affiliates) may purchase, and ZeroFox will provide to Customer, a right to access and use on a subscription basis ZeroFox’s proprietary cloud-based software-as-a service security solution hosted on one or more websites designated by ZeroFox (the “Platform”). Subject to Customer’s payment of all applicable fees, ZeroFox grants Customer a limited, non-transferable, and non-exclusive right to access and use the Platform. Such use is subject to Service Parameters set forth in the Order which may include pricing tiers and other usage-based options you purchase, and you may only use the Platform during the Subscription Term (collectively, the “Platform Subscription”). Subject to Section 4 below, the Platform may be used only by Customer’s employees or contractors who are acting on Customer’s behalf in the internal operation of Customer’s business.
2. Platform Support
ZeroFox will provide Customer with OnWatch™ technical support regarding use of the Platform at the plan level purchased by Customer in the applicable Order (“Technical Support”). Customer agrees to provide ZeroFox with reasonable information and assistance to facilitate the provision of Technical Support. Additional support terms can be found at https://www.zerofox.com/terms-and-transparency/zerofox-for-business-services-addendum/ or its successor site and are incorporated by reference. These terms may be amended by ZeroFox in its sole discretion, however, ZeroFox hereby agrees that any such modification will not materially alter the nature of ZeroFox’s Technical Support commitments.
3. Professional Services
You may also separately purchase Professional Services as part of your use of the Platform or on a stand-alone basis. The Professional Services may be subject to additional terms and conditions to be set forth in a separately executed statement of work (“SOW”), if applicable. ZeroFOX will be under no obligation to perform Professional Services until an Order or SOW in relation thereto, as applicable, has been accepted by ZeroFox. If the Professional Services involve the delivery of any work product, developments, inventions, technology, or materials (collectively, “Deliverables”) except to the extent that such Deliverables include Customer-owned intellectual property, ZeroFox retains ownership of all Deliverables, including all Intellectual Property Rights therein
Subject to ZeroFox’s reasonable acceptance (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed), Customer’s Affiliates may place an Order or SOW under this Agreement. Each such Order and SOW, as applicable, will be a separate agreement between ZeroFox and each Customer Affiliate that signs an Order and/or SOW. In each case Customer and Customer’s Affiliate will be jointly liable for compliance with the Order/SOW and this Agreement. In each case where Customer’s Affiliate has not entered into an Order or SOW directly with ZeroFox, Customer acknowledges and agrees that it is liable for the acts and omissions of its Affiliates.
5. Authorized Partner Transaction
Customer may purchase a Platform Subscription or obtain Professional Services pursuant to an Order or SOW submitted to ZeroFox by an Authorized Partner on Customer’s behalf. If Customer has purchased a Platform Subscription or Professional Services through an Authorized Partner, then (a) the payment obligations related thereto will be between Customer and the Authorized Partner and not ZeroFox, and (b) Customer will have no direct payment obligations to ZeroFox and Sections 18 and 19 of this Agreement will not be applicable with respect to such Order(s) or SOW(s); provided, however, that ZeroFox may terminate this Agreement (and all Orders and SOWs) if Customer breaches any of its payment obligations to Authorized Partner relating to this Agreement. Any terms agreed to between Customer and the Authorized Partner that are in addition to or inconsistent with this Agreement are solely between Customer and the Authorized Partner. No agreement between Customer and an Authorized Partner is binding on ZeroFox, nor will it have any force or effect with respect to the use of the Platform or ZeroFox’s provision of Professional Services.
6. Customer Content
As between the Parties, Customer owns all right, title, and interest in and to Customer Content, including all associated Intellectual Property Rights. Customer, on behalf of itself and its Affiliates and Authorized Users, hereby grants to ZeroFox a non-exclusive, royalty-free, right and license during the Order Term to use, reproduce, transmit, perform, display and store Customer Content solely for ZeroFox (and subject to Section 35, its Ordinary Course Providers and Affiliates) to fulfill ZeroFox’s obligations hereunder to provide the Platform Subscription and Professional Services. In performing its obligations hereunder, ZeroFox will employ appropriate security measures throughout the Order Term, taking into account the nature of the information, data and content processed, in accordance with applicable industry practice to protect Customer Content from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. Without limiting the foregoing, ZeroFox will comply with all Applicable Laws including, but not limited to, those with respect to its use of Customer Content comprising Personal Information.
7. ZeroFox Content
As part of your use of the Platform and/or obtaining Professional Services, you will be provided with, or given access to, proprietary content and data that is created ZeroFox or generated by the Platform which includes information such as suspicious URLs and domains, lists of malware, information about phishing campaigns, indicators of compromise, data feeds, botnet information and other proprietary threat intelligence (collectively, “ZeroFox Content”). ZeroFox grants you a limited, non-exclusive, and non-transferable right during the Order Term to access and use the ZeroFox Content for your internal business purposes solely as part of your use of the Platform and receipt of Professional Services.
8. Source Platforms
9. Takedown Request
If Takedown Requests are requested by Customer, ZeroFox or its Affiliate, will initiate Takedown Requests with the applicable Source Platform. In such case, Customer grants to ZeroFox and its Affiliates for the Order Term a limited, revocable appointment to submit Takedown Requests on behalf of Customer (and any Customer Affiliate and Authorized Users) and agrees to provide written authorizations upon ZeroFox’s reasonable request that ZeroFox or its Affiliate can share with the third-party provider(s) to confirm ZeroFox’s or its Affiliate’s authority to submit such Takedown Requests. Customer acknowledges and agrees that ZeroFox does not and cannot control the processing of Takedown Requests by Source Platforms or other third-party providers. The Source Platform ultimately determines whether to process a Takedown Request in its sole discretion, thus ZeroFox does not guarantee success of any Takedown Request or provide legal advice with respect to whether a Source Platform will agree to process a Takedown Request.
ZeroFox grants to you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and non-sublicensable right during the Subscription Term to reproduce copies of all then-current Documentation, solely to exercise the rights granted in this Agreement. No right is otherwise granted to distribute, publish, modify, adapt, translate, or create derivative works of the Documentation. You shall accurately reproduce all proprietary notices, including any copyright notices, trademark notices and confidentiality notices that are contained within any copies of the Documentation.
11. Evaluation Use
If ZeroFox grants you a right to use any part of the Platform on a trial, evaluation, beta, proof-of-concept, or other free-of-charge basis (“Evaluation Use”), then you may only use the Platform on a temporary basis for the period of time limited by ZeroFox as specified in the applicable Order. If there is no period identified by ZeroFox, such use is limited to ten (10) days. If you do not cease your Evaluation Use by the end of the trial period, ZeroFox will invoice you for the then-current list price for use of the Platform, and you agree to pay such invoice. ZeroFox, in its sole discretion, may stop providing the Evaluation Use at any time, at which point you will no longer have access to any related data, information, and files and must immediately cease using the Platform. You acknowledge that during an Evaluation Use, the Platform (or portion thereof) may not have been subject to ZeroFox’s usual testing and quality assurance processes and may contain bugs, errors, or other issues. Except where agreed to in writing by ZeroFox, your Evaluation Use will be implemented in special cloud-based instance specifically for evaluation purposes. The Evaluation Use is provided “AS-IS” without technical support or any express or implied warranty or indemnity for any problems or issues, and ZeroFox will not have any liability relating to your Evaluation Use.
12. Customer Responsibilities
You are responsible for procuring and operating all computer networks, software, and telecommunications services required to meet the minimum technical specifications necessary to access the Platform. Customer will: (a) be responsible for Authorized Users’ compliance with this Agreement, Documentation, and applicable Orders and SOWs; (b) be responsible for the accuracy, quality and legality of Customer Content provided to ZeroFox; (c) be responsible for providing all notices to, and obtaining all consents and authorizations from, its employees, agents and contractors (“Personnel”) required under Applicable Law; (d) use the Platform only in accordance with this Agreement, applicable Documentation, Order, and Applicable Laws; (e) reasonably ensuring Customer Content includes no more Sensitive Information than is necessary; (f) use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access or use of the Platform; and (g) shall contact ZeroFox promptly if any logins are lost, stolen or compromised or Customer reasonably believes the Platform has been compromised.
13. Customer Restrictions
Customer shall not, directly or indirectly: (a) enable any person or entity other than Authorized Users to access and use the Platform; (b) sell, resell, license, sublicense, rent, lease or distribute any ZeroFox Content or any derivative work thereof; (c) “frame” or “mirror” the Platform or any ZeroFox Content contained therein for the benefit of any third-party; (d) reverse engineer, disassemble or decompile all or any portion of, or attempt to discover or recreate the source code for, any software that is part of the Platform (except to the extent such restriction is limited under Applicable Law); (e) access or use the Platform, ZeroFox Content, or Documentation or Deliverables for purposes of competitive analysis or the development, provision or use of competing products or services; (f) remove, obscure or alter any proprietary notice related to the Platform or Professional Services; (g) use the Platform to send or store Malicious Code; or (h) use or permit others to use the Platform or Professional Services other than as described in this Agreement, or for any unlawful purpose.
In addition, you will not intentionally: (aa) interfere with other customers’ access to, or use of, the Platform; (bb) facilitate the attack or disruption of the Platform, including a denial of service attack, unauthorized access, penetration testing; (cc) intentionally cause an unusual spike or increase in your use of the Platform that negatively impacts the Platform’s operation; or (dd) submit any information to the Platform that is not contemplated in the applicable Documentation.
14. Investigation and Suspension
ZeroFox may, but has no obligation to, investigate potential violations regarding use of the Platform, and to monitor, restrict and remove any Customer Content, Outside Material or suspend services for as long as necessary to address the potential violation and ensure compliance with this Agreement. Except in urgent or emergency situations, ZeroFox will notify Customer of any such suspension in advance, and work with Customer in good faith to resolve the potential violation. When legally required, ZeroFox may report any activity that ZeroFox reasonably believes violates any law or regulation to law enforcement, regulators, or other appropriate parties, and may also cooperate with any investigation by such parties.
15. Platform Maintenance
ZeroFox may enhance or refine the Platform from time to time, but when it does ZeroFox will not materially reduce the core functionality of the Platform. Such changes may be required to comply with law or Outside ToS. ZeroFox will also perform scheduled maintenance on the infrastructure of the Platform, during which time you may experience some disruption to the Platform. ZeroFox will provide you advance notice of such maintenance periods via the Platform; however, you acknowledge that ZeroFox may need to perform emergency maintenance without providing you advance notice, during which time ZeroFox may temporarily suspend your access to, and use of, the Platform.
16. Feedback and Analytics
If you provide ZeroFox with any suggestions, requested improvements or feedback regarding the Platform or Professional Services (collectively, “Feedback”), ZeroFox may use the Feedback for any purpose without acknowledgement or compensation; provided, however, Customer will not be identified publicly as the source of the Feedback. ZeroFox may also use information related to Customer’s use of the Platform (“Analytics”) to provide, evaluate, improve, and promote ZeroFox’s products and services, including to provide Authorized Users and other customers with insights and other reporting. Except where Analytics are used directly for Customer, ZeroFox shall de-identify Analytics with respect to any Personal Information and shall in no event attribute any Analytics to Customer (or any Authorized User) without Customer’s prior written consent.
17. ZeroFox Proprietary Rights
Exclusive of any Customer Content or Customer Confidential Information, ZeroFox is the sole and exclusive owner of all right, title and interest in and to the Platform (and underlying software), Documentation, Feedback, and all associated Intellectual Property Rights therein, as well as any and all know-how, processes, methods, specifications, inventions, user interfaces, libraries and other technology and materials of any kind that are used or provided by ZeroFox to Customer or an Authorized User in connection with the use of the Platform and provision of Professional Services. No title to or ownership of any associated Intellectual Property Rights is transferred under this Agreement to Customer and ZeroFox reserves all rights not otherwise expressly granted in this Agreement.
Customer shall pay to ZeroFox the amounts specified in each Order and SOW, as applicable, in accordance with its terms and this Agreement. Unless otherwise specified in the Order or an SOW, all amounts must be paid in U.S. dollars within thirty (30) days of receipt of each ZeroFox invoice. All amounts are non-refundable unless: (a) an Order or SOW is terminated early by Customer pursuant to Section 29; (b) this Agreement and all Orders and SOWs are terminated early by Customer pursuant to Section 29 ; or (c) this Agreement or any Orders and SOWs are terminated early by ZeroFox pursuant to Sections 24 or 29 , in which case (i) Customer shall not be obligated to pay any additional amounts specified in the applicable Orders and SOWs following the effective date of termination, and (ii) ZeroFox will refund to Customer a pro rata share of any unused amounts prepaid by Customer under the applicable Order on the basis of the remaining portion of the current Order Term (a “Pro-Rated Refund”). In all other cases, and regardless of whether Customer uses the Platform or Professional Services reflected in the Orders, SOWs or otherwise, Customer is responsible for paying all amounts specified in all applicable invoices through expiration of the applicable Order Terms.
All fees and amounts set forth in the Orders and SOWs are exclusive of taxes, levies, duties, or charges owed under Applicable Law (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer shall be responsible for paying all sales, service, value-added, use, excise, consumption, and any other Taxes on amounts payable by Customer under the Orders, SOWs, and this Agreement (other than any Taxes on ZeroFox’s income, revenues, gross receipts, personnel, or assets). If Customer is required to deduct or withhold any Taxes under Applicable Law, Customer must pay the amount deducted or withheld as required by Applicable Law and pay ZeroFox an additional amount so that ZeroFox receives payment in full of amounts due under this Agreement as if there were no deduction or withholding.
Unless either Party gives the other Party written notice of its intention not to renew an Order regarding a Platform Subscription at least thirty (30) days prior to the Order’s then current expiration date, the Order with respect to such Platform Subscription will automatically renew for a Subscription Term of the same duration as the expiring Order Term (each, a “Renewal Order Term”). The Parties agree that ZeroFox may increase its applicable prices by up to 7% for a Renewal Order Term.
21. Confidential Information
As used in this Agreement, “Confidential Information” means any information disclosed by one Party, its Affiliates, or their respective employees, agents, or contractors (the “Discloser”) that is designated as confidential, either orally or in writing, or that, given the nature of the information or circumstances surrounding its disclosure, reasonably should be understood to be confidential.

The Recipient shall use any Confidential Information of the Discloser solely for the purposes for which it is provided by the Discloser. This Section will not be interpreted or construed to prohibit: (a) any use or disclosure which is necessary or appropriate in connection with the Recipient’s performance of its obligations or exercise of its rights under this Agreement; (b) any use or disclosure required by Applicable Law, provided that the Recipient uses reasonable efforts to give the Discloser reasonable advance notice thereof to afford the Discloser an opportunity to intervene and seek an order or other appropriate relief for the protection of its Confidential Information; or (c) any use or disclosure made with the consent of the Discloser. In the event of any breach or threatened breach by the Recipient of its obligations under this Section, the Discloser will be entitled to seek injunctive and other equitable relief to enforce such obligations.

If Customer or any Authorized User is using the Platform or Professional Services on behalf of the U.S. Government and these terms fail to meet the U.S. Government’s needs or are inconsistent in any respect with federal law, Customer and Customer’s Authorized Users must immediately discontinue such use. The terms listed above are defined in the Federal Acquisition Regulation and the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement.
42. Governing Law; Venue
The Parties agree that both the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (“UCITA”) are specifically excluded from application to this Agreement.

45. Changes to this Agreement
ZeroFox may update or modify this Agreement from time to time. If a revision meaningfully reduces Customer’s rights, ZeroFox will use reasonable efforts to notify Customer (by, for example, sending an email to the billing contact you designate in the applicable Order or by posting through the Subscription Service). If ZeroFox modifies the Agreement during an Order Term, the modified version will be effective immediately upon the start of the next Renewal Order Term. In this case, if Customer objects to the updated Agreement, as its sole and exclusive remedy, Customer may choose not to renew, including canceling any terms set to auto-renew. For the avoidance of doubt, any Order is subject to the version of the Agreement in effect at the time of the Order.
